How do I zero write the hdd with SLAX?
You were close... Try this one:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M
If you're looking to wipe it for security reasons (selling/giving the drive), you can write random data instead of 0s:
dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda bs=1M
Make sure that /dev/sda is, indeed, the drive that you want to wipe!
Just re-read the original post... if needed, replace sda with hda.
